    Having moved the action away from the dark tunnels of Moscow's underground onto a train, going into the unknown and forced to make stops throughout the journey, Metro Exodus' authors created a memorable interactive adventure consisting of happiness from discovering love and grief from irreplacebale loss, hope of better future and despair from understanding the truth. On top of that one might call Exodus a distorting mirror that reveals the most horrible sins of mysterious Russian soul: heresy and servilism.

    The best post-apocalyptic survival game of the generation, that innovates in terms of both its varied gameplay mechanics and its incisive storytelling.

    Metro Exodus opens up a world held closed by its predecessors. This time, it's up to our well known hero Artyom to explore the unexplored regions of Mother Russia, in all of its open world glory. So sit back and enjoy the unique experience, visual wonders and darkest secrets of the beloved Metro universe.

    It still has some of the technical issues we’ve seen from 4A Games before, but Metro Exodus stands as a terrific post-apocalyptic shooter that expands on the series’ customization options and environments without ignoring its survival roots. 4A Games remains committed to turning author Dmitry Glukhovsky’s stories into (barely) living and breathing worlds, offering brief glimpses of hope in an otherwise depressing and occasionally nihilistic tale. Exodus establishes Metro as one of the great narrative-focused shooters, and it proves that exciting action doesn’t have to come at detriment to story.

    Metro Exodus is an entertaining post-apocalyptic shooter that isn’t afraid to take chances with the series’ formula.

    Metro Exodus feels like a solid simulacrum of someone else trying to make a Fallout game, for all the benefits and drawbacks that entails. Its maps are fun to explore, and effort has been put into making the side areas rewarding in both narrative expansion and bonus upgrades to your gear. That said, Exodus doesn’t have the same handle on ambient storytelling and visual interest to drive you to investigate every corner of the map.
  7. 60
    While Metro Exodus doesn’t do anything wrong as a blockbuster shooter, where the original titles were original and refreshing, Exodus is yet another in a ever-deepening pile, and the Metro franchise deserved better than to be exhausting.

Отличная графика и детализация, это первая игра в которой мне интересно просто заходить в каждый дом и все рассматривать, особенно понравился Новосибирск, так как сам здесь живу! Есть конечно небольшие косяки, но думаю с патчами ребята их пофиксят. Спасибо за игру 4a games, жаль что оценку игре занижают последователи габена. Expand

However, the interesting story was gradually start from the second maps in the desert. Feel myself was driving in Mad Max (game of 2015). I was began to enjoy the story of this game. It's talking about a team of survivals looking for rescuers. This game was also considered as a horror game, the monsters so scary. I was also scared when I encounter an electric ball anomaly during at the night.

    Some players say they have motion sickness, please reduce your mouse sensitivity to 4/10 or lower. It's not about the FOV but is mouse sensitivity too high. I was played this game for whole day, no motion sick and enjoy my game.

    I cannot give full score because the story is good but not the best. I was played the best games such like God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Red Dead Redemption 2. Metro Exodus has not reached to the masterpiece level.

Its obvious the game was not ready to ship and still needed ALOT of work...just in 3hrs of play I've had to reset the game atleast 10 different times because I somehow clip into a wall or a car frame and cannot get out of it, I get stuck in a crouch position. The AI is dumber than dirt, the friendly AI doesn't react to anything and constantly repeats the same sentence over and over the second you take 1 step too close. The enemy AI can clip inside of walls or die inside of cars making it impossible to loot and or kill them depending on the instance. There have been countless instances where the character gets stuck on nothing just trying to back up, the boat driving is hot garbage you will get stuck and have to back up before you can go forward again....This game is a mess, it seriously needed more polish and bug checking...The fanboys can try to praise it all they want but the game is half broken and you shouldn't have to walk on egg shells or do basic tasks gingerly just to not get stuck in some geometry Expand

    While the game looks spectacular - despite the frame rate issues - the game-play has clearly suffered as a result. I haven't played any of theWhile the game looks spectacular - despite the frame rate issues - the game-play has clearly suffered as a result. I haven't played any of the other Metro games, but in comparison to other FPS, this game is about as clunky as they come: movement speed is comically slow for the setting, weapon aiming is some of the worst in the last decade, button layout is overcomplicated, and traversing the open world quickly becomes an exercise in avoiding scenery so your avatar doesn't get stuck on invisible objects or protrusions. In these respects, it feels as though it bears more in common with Fallout than a more traditional FPS.

    The voice acting for the English dub isn't the worst I've heard on this generation, but the low quality dialoging and the editorial choices to overlap character dialogue result in conversations that are far from convincing or compelling. In large conversations, or conversations where other dialogue is taking place behind a wall or in another room, the important information becomes difficult to distinguish from the background content. It's not an inherently bad choice to do overlapping audio, but it needs to be executed such that the important dialogue is always louder than less important dialogue - a technique called side-chaining. This is made worse by the subtitles that are in a difficult color with little effort put into distinguishing speakers from one another.

    These are really a shame as the underlying story is interesting and something I'd like to get involved in. I'm not sure that the gameplay will allow me to really invest myself in the world the way I'd like to. I constantly feel as though my immersion is being broken, in part by the mechanics that are intended to increase immersion. For instance, rather than providing a radar with a location or quest indicator, the game provides you with a map that is referenced in real time. More often than not, you end up wandering around a location with no idea where to go next trying to find some object to open a door or a boat to climb into. It's deeply immersion breaking, and results in an unpleasant playing experience.

    Perhaps the worst of all these issues, though, is the nauseating field of view. I do not get motion sick, I do not have issues playing fast motion games, I do not have issues watching shaky cam movies. This game, however, makes me ill. Not only is it nauseatingly narrow, it actually makes it difficult to see what's happening in the environment around you: enemies will pop out of your FOV with no notice, objects will protrude and make contact with the player avatar but never actually broach into the FOV, and scripted movements like climbing, "swimming", and rowing the boat all create a distinct sea-sick feeling. It's perhaps the most pronounced failure of FOV I've seen this generation, and the lack of any FOV slider may actually be so bad as to be considered game breaking.

    I absolutely do not recommend this game for PS4 in its current state. It's clearly not had the amount of time necessary to optimize it for consoles, and I thin there have been many creative decisions made that exchange quality gameplay for excellent graphics. I have no idea if any of the issues outlined will be fixed, or it patches are something 4A does with any regularity, but there's a host of glaring problems in the game that need to be addressed before this is worth much more than $30.

The game handles like a bus with only one square wheel. I had to turn up the sensitivity to max because the game handles that badly. I even changed out my controller...just in case. Sadly the game was the problem. Expand
